BEE 4270 - Water Measurement and Analysis Methods

Fall. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: hydrology, soil or fluid mechanics course. Satisfies EnvE laboratory experience requirement. Co-meets with BEE 5270 .

B. Richards, T. Steenhuis.

Managing soil and water resources requires monitoring. In this field-based lab course, you learn techniques to quantify water flow in surface and subsurface environments and monitor water quality in lakes, rivers and groundwater. Soil health considerations, measurement accuracy, and water sampling quality assurance are discussed. The final project involves designing a water quality monitoring plan for a research or industrial site.

Outcome 1: Students will display an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences (ABET 3).

Outcome 2: Students will improve their ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgement to draw conclusions (ABET 6).
